Rob Durisin, of Ontario, Canada, might be the owner of the Baddest Bagger in Sturgis 2011, and John Shope, of Sinister Industries, is the builder of this over-the-top Bagger, but this was a team effort throughout the build process. Last year they collaborated on a 2010 Street Glide that they named "Game Over". At that time, John and Rob wanted to raise the bar on custom Baggers higher than it had ever been raised before. Although they were satisfied with their efforts on Game Over, a new year meant a new and greater challenge. A 2010 Road Glide gave its life so John could twist, bend and tweak every aspect of the Bagger into the ultimate custom. The end result raised the bar higher than the two could imagine and was voted Baddest Bagger in Sturgis 2011 by the competitors of the show, the highest honor possible.

Sinister Industries bumped up the 96" Twin Cam motor to a 103". The lower end remains Harley while the top end received Screamin' Eagle cams, S&S > >

The stretched bags are from Sinister and feature their taillight and license plate mount. Dakota Digital supplied the gauges. Bagger Concepts upgraded the audio system. The Sinister Industries' floorboards and foot controls are off-the-shelf units that are designed to fit stock Baggers. Sinthium Inc., out of Phoenix, AZ, applied the Pearl Candy Orange paint, while Concourse applied all of the shiny chrome. Sinister Industries can now add Baddest Bagger in Sturgis to their trophy case, with a well deserved bar-raising Bagger. It makes you think, a Dave Dupor Bagger won the show last year, John Shope won this year. Who is going to push the envelope and win the prestigious title in 2012?

adjustable pushrods and Wiseco pistons. The stock heads were ported and polished, a Zipper's ThunderMax was installed for proper fuel management and a crazy, custom Sinister exhaust system was installed to expel the gases more efficiently. From the seat forward, the frame was completely rebuilt and the wires were run internally. Neck rake was increased to 43 degrees and an additional 12 degrees was gained through Hawg Halters triple trees. The fairing has been fixed to the front fork and turns with the front wheel. The front wheel is a monster 30" five-spoke from Sinister Industries.

To provide the stopping power for the massive front wheel, dual Sinister rotors and HHI calipers were installed. A matching 16" five-spoke Sinister Industries' wheel rides on the back, with the stock rotor and caliper providing the braking. Sinister Industries' pull-back bars ride on the stock risers with Sinister grips, Thunder Cycle Design mirrors and Performance Machine hand controls. The low profile windshield is from Sinister, and rumor has it that there will be a taller one coming out in the near future. The stretched gas tank is a modified Russ Wernimont Designs' product and the fenders are a combination of Sinister and B'Cool Products.
